Dr. Yuan enjoys her work as an optometrist. She performs comprehensive eye exams to detect eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. She examines the visual system to rule out any disorders such as crossed eyes and color deficiency. She prescribes glasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery based on a patient’s work, life style and concerns to maximize the vision and visual comfort. Dr. Yuan is therapeutic licensed to diagnose, treat and manage many eye conditions such as eye infections, eye inflammation, allergies, dry eye syndrome and watery eyes.
Dr. Yuan is a member of the American Academy of Orthokeratology, Scleral Lens Education Society and International Keratoconus Academy. Since her son is near-sighted, she is very interested in new research and treatment options for myopic control. She also has a passion to fit specialty contact lenses for patients with irregular astigmatism, high prescription, keratoconus, keratoglobus, pellucid marginal degeneration and post-surgical cornea. With her specialization in helping patients with keratoconus, she was a Top Doctor nominee for 2020 by the National Keratoconus Foundation.
Dr. Yuan was born and raised in Guang Zhou, China. She speaks fluent Mandarin and Cantonese, as well as some Spanish which is very helpful for eye exams. Dr. Yuan has been happily married for twenty-five years. She is blessed with two beautiful children. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, yoga, swimming, sight-seeing, going to church, and spending time with family and friends.
